Grading Obama’s love letters: women swoon, men see through them

What kind of grade would he (Barack Obama) have gotten for such T.S. Eliot analysis…a reading that was admittedly done without perusing the footnotes 프렌즈팝 무료 다운로드? We checked in with some current members of the Columbia English department.
